UAlberta removes, condemns “disturbing racist posters” found on campus

September 21, 2016

The University of Alberta has condemned a series of “disturbing, racist posters” that were reportedly found across the university’s campus this week. The posters reportedly targeted the Sikh community in particular, a move that World Sikh Organization President Mukhbir Singh says is “a pathetic attempt at drawing the spotlight to deplorable views that have been rejected in Canada.” UAlberta President David Turpin has stated that the school is working with authorities to find the parties responsible for the posters, adding that “the University of Alberta is a space that is open to all people and we take pride in the strength of our diverse community.” Global News | Edmonton Journal | Journal de Montréal
